The Covenant of Baha’u’llah and Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity – by Mike Moum

It is often stated that the physical world is a metaphor for or analogous to the spiritual world, and in that context, while reading a popularized presentation of Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, I wondered whether there was anything in the spiritual realm that the theory might be a metaphor for. After giving the matter some thought, I realized that the Baha’i Covenant “fit the bill”, as it were. Here is my thinking.

“It is indubitably clear, that the pivot of the oneness of mankind is nothing else but the power of the Covenant….”
(‘Abdu’l-Bahá, cited in “God Passes By”, pp. 238-39)

“No power can eliminate misunderstandings except that of the Covenant. The power of the Covenant is all-embracing, and resolveth all difficulties, for the Pen of Glory hath explicitly declared that whatever misunderstanding may arise should be referred to the Centre of the Covenant….”

The Nature of Spiritual Law – by Mike Moum

The Universal House of Justice, the authority in the Baha’i Faith to which all must turn, has stated:

“Just as there are laws governing our physical lives, requiring that we must supply our bodies with certain foods, maintain them within a certain range of temperatures, and so forth, if we wish to avoid physical disabilities, so also there are laws governing our spiritual lives. These laws are revealed to mankind in each age by the Manifestation of God, and obedience to them is of vital importance if each human being, and mankind in general, is to develop properly and harmoniously.” (From a letter of the Universal House of Justice to an individual believer; excerpts to all National Spiritual Assemblies, February 6, 1973: Messages from the Universal House of Justice, 1968-1973, pp. 105-106)
